Welcome to the 20th Annual
Akron Pet Expo Adoption Event - virtual!

From August 1-31, we will be highlighting local shelters that have many animals looking for their forever home! Plus, we will once again present the Cutest Pet Contest. We will also be accepting monetary donations which will go directly to our local shelters for food and supplies they need to keep running.
